Morpeth 10k

20 Harriers took part in the Morpeth 10k on the evening of Tuesday 2nd August. The race, the latest of our Grand Prix events, was held on an undulating course in perfect running conditions with little wind, cool temperatures and drizzle. This meant some excellent times and plenty of silverware for our contingent! 1st Harrier to finish, just as he was at the recent Northumberland Coastal Run, was Dan TURNBULL. In an excellent field Dan was 10th overall in a splendid 35.27. He finished exactly 2 minutes ahead of our 2nd placed runner, the 2nd overall female finisher Ella BROWN. Ella ran 37.27 which is the fastest 10k by a female Harrier this year so far.


Peter GREY was next to finish for us and was 2nd in the male 55 age group, whilst Tim FALCONER was just over 30 seconds further back and was 3rd in the male 50 category. There was a return to form for Mark DOUGLAS in 41.58, with Dave HINDMARSH also racing well a minute behind Mark. Carole PAGE once again showed what a brilliant athlete she is by easily winning the female 55 age group, whilst Angie EMBLETON pb’d and was 2nd in the female 40 age group, Steve STUDLEY smashed his previous 10k best and Mark HUME was 1st in the male 70 age group! A good night all round.
